Most sublimation inks are water-based, and water-based sublimation inks can be used in various small-format desktop printers and large-format photo printers. The advantage is that it can be transferred to different media, not just paper. Many different media can be transferred; the disadvantage is that the operating procedures are more troublesome and the price is higher. Next, we talk about the shortcomings of water-based sublimation inks:

Product overview of sublimation ink

Sublimation ink, it is to print the thermal transfer ink on the transfer medium, then heat transfer to the target medium, and heat to fix the color. The thickness of the thermal transfer paper is 45-55 grams, and the cost is reduced by reducing the thickness of the thermal transfer paper and the transfer voltage. Mainly used for heating transfer printing products. sublimation ink can be heated by a heat transfer machine to print patterns and text on other products, so it is one of the indispensable materials in the heat transfer industry.

Product shortcomings of sublimation ink

The production of water-based sublimation ink requires a higher level of nano-dispersion technology and nano-level disperse dye paste. Because disperse dyes are insoluble in water and very difficult to disperse, special dispersing equipment and nano-dispersing technology are needed to produce ultra-fine particle sublimation inks, and few companies in the world have this technology. Water-based dye sublimation inks are widely used in personal desktop inkjet printers and commercial large format photo machines, mainly for digital dye-sublimation transfer printing.

In addition, since dye sublimation ink is a printing consumable, it is very important to choose high-quality and low price dye sublimation ink. For example, a desktop printer only costs more than 300 yuan, and a liter of ink may cost 400 to 800 yuan, and a set of ink may even cost 6 to 7,000 yuan. Therefore, if the choice is not good, the ink you buy seems to be more expensive than the printer.

The main production areas and advantages of sublimation

Dye sublimation inks are mainly produced in the United States and South Korea. American dye sublimation inks and Korean dye sublimation inks have bright colors. The patterns of American dye sublimation inks and Korean dye sublimation inks printed on paper are light and clear and are heated and transferred by a heat transfer machine. After that, the image is clear and the color reproduction is high, which is also the advantage of imported sublimation ink. In addition, due to the high density of transfer ink, it is easy to block the printer nozzle, and imported sublimation ink can avoid this phenomenon.
